“With a strong track record of creating successful SaaS and cloud-based enterprise-grade solutions and a leadership style that delivers exceptional results, Peretz will drive consistent execution of our CyberArk Identity Security Platform roadmap and further extend our already-strong competitive advantage,” said Udi Mokady, founder, chairman and CEO of CyberArk. “Chen’s continued leadership and deep market understanding will further help us to strengthen our Identity Security market leadership. I am incredibly proud of the CyberArk team and our ability to consistently execute to drive business momentum and customer value.”
Prior to PayPal, Regev led the SaaS products and Big Data Analytics teams at HP Software, where he helped define the company’s overall product strategy and roadmap, drove the research agenda with the HP Labs team, and developed the vision and business strategy for the organization’s end-to-end DevOps solutions during his 12-year tenure.
“CyberArk consistently demonstrates the ability to improve security for customers by leveraging intelligent privilege controls at the core of their Identity Security strategies. I am proud to join an organization that is committed to driving innovation and value with a customer-first approach, while maintaining a focus on the horizon for emerging cyber threats,” said Regev. “I look forward to collaborating with our research, product and technology teams to help customers and partners improve security that matches the pace of digital investments.”
